Temperature labels look like a hot idea

NEED to monitor the maximum temperature of pipework, machinery or metals during welding?

London-based Carel Components has added a series of miniature temperature monitoring labels into its Hermet range.

Designated the "Compact 5" series, the yellow labels are claimed to be highly visible and easy to read.

Measuring 10mm x 24mm, the labels are used in groups of five and each one contains three windows.

The windows monitor an ascending temperature range and turn black within  1% of 1C of their shown range, says Carel Components.

Available in packs of 20, the standard range monitors 43C to 138C in four temperature selections (020-8946 9882 ccs@carel.co.uk).
